Late Sunday evening we were notified that a group of Scouts and their leaders were overdue on a weekend hike. With information, as to their departure time, planned route, age of the Scouts and good weather, we decided to wait until morning. About 9 a.m. we were advised that the group had hiked out and that everyone was fine. They had just taken longer to complete the route than they had planned, just as we had thought.
